"Come To Silver" as written by and Glenn Danzig....
Come to silver
Come to gold
Come do any old thing
Sell your body and soul

Make you kill a man
Ruin your soul
Come to silver
Come to gold

Come to silver
Just as hard as you can
Come do anything
For life of sin

You can have everything
Big house up on a hill
Come to silver
Come to kill

Come downhearted
Come to gold
It'll make you lose your way
Turn your heart so cold

Steal the wife of another man
Let money buy her love
Gonna be some hard time
When you come to gold

If you come to silver
If you come to gold
Hope that you're happy
With the life you've sown

Coulda had everything
But you didn't want to know
You had to come to silver
You had to come to gold
You had to come to gold
You had to come to gold
You had to come to gold

    General CommentNo, not really. It's more about ruining a life to cheating. I think the lyrics are wrong, too. Because here's what I personally hear:

    Come to silver
    Come to gold

    Come to do any old thing
    Sell ye body and soul

    Make you kill a man
    It'll ruin your soul

    Come to silver
    Come to gold

    Come to silver
    Just as hard as you can

    Come to do anything
    For a life of sin

    You can have everything
    Big house up on a hill

    Come to silver
    Come to kill

    Come to heartache
    Come to gold

    It'll make you loose your way
    Turn your heart to cold

    Steal the wife of another man
    Let money buy her love

    Gonna be some hard time
    When you come to gold

    If you come to silver
    Or come to gold
    I hope that you're happy
    With the life you sold

    Coulda had everything
    But you didn't want to know

    How to come to silver
    Had to come to gold

    Welcome to gold
    Welcome to gold
    Welcome to gold


    So to me it seems like he's saying having silver is the best. It's still a life of sin, but you have what you need, a house, a wife, a life...

    Then coming to gold is when you ultimately ruin yourself. You cheat on that wife you sinned to make so happy, you also steal the wife of the man who loves the woman you're cheating on your own wife with. But in gold, you have to buy her love, when in silver, you had the unending love of real love, not a fake money-hungry love. But it's too late, becuase your wife finds out, and the silver is gone forever, and you're left with gold.

    Still, a very beautiful song. Danzig is the man...zig.
